Message to Parents

Dear Parent/Carer

As we approach the end of this first term, I would like to remind you that we break for the October week on Friday 15th at the usual time and will resume again on Tuesday 26th October.

Parent-Teacher Consultations will again be held virtually via on Thursday 4th November from 4pm and Friday 5th November from 1pm. Details of how to book your appointment will be sent out separately. 

Once again we thank you for your continued patience and understanding this term. Like many other schools and businesses, we have had numerous unavoidable absences across our staff team. We appreciate the impact and frustration disruptions like this can bring and want you to know that we will continue to do our very best for our pupils and their families during this time. Please bear with us if some tasks take a little longer!

You will appreciate that our wonderful parent council are unable to run the Halloween Disco again this year due to ongoing restrictions. We know how much some children enjoy dressing up so are happy if they choose to wear something Halloween themed on Friday 29th October. I would ask that parents use their judgment about what pupils bring to school and request that no overly gory or frightening masks or props are brought in. 

Thank you to everyone who responded to our text alerts about the Foodbank and about the P5-P7 ski trip. We will be in touch after the October break with further information about both.

On Friday, we will release the first edition of the pupil-led School Newsletter on Sway. Each edition will be sent out at the end of each term and will focus on two of the Wellbeing Indicators [Safe, Healthy, Achieving, Nurtured, Active, Respected, Responsible, Included]. The first edition will focus on the themes of Health and Safety.

From next term, there will be a weekly Head Teacher update on the school website to keep parents and carers more regularly informed about events in school.

I would like to wish you all a restful October week next week and look forward to welcoming our young people back on Tuesday 26th October.

Best wishes

Fiona Craig
Head Teacher
